If you were wondering what President-Elect Donald Trump’s team is up to on Thanksgiving, look no further than Kellyanne Conway’s Twitter account, The Hill noticed.
Wednesday afternoon, billionaire Betsy DeVos was named to head Trump’s Department of Education. The response American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten came in the form of a tweet, “Trump has chosen the most ideological, anti-public ed nominee since the creation of the Dept of Education.”

DeVos is known for supporting legislation around the country for vouchers to send children to private schools. Government vouchers never fully cover the cost of a private school education. So, for families that must pay for the other portion, it’s like a coupon. For families that can’t pay for the cost that vouchers don’t cover, they must stay in public schools.
Conway trolled Weingarten with a tweet of her own calling the slam a “ringing endorsement.”
